Cultivating Attention

The sound of a tibetan bell, the focus on one's breathing, the calming of one's thoughts. This might sound like the beginning of a yoga class, but it's the sound of a mindful moment in classrooms throughout Far Hills.

In a society that is often over-stimulated, it is essential that as educators, we teach our students how to pay attention. At Far Hills, practicing mindfulness is an essential skill that students can lean into when they become distracted—a tool that will serve them well throughout their lives.
